Egelston-Dodd, Judy, Ed.
This trainers' manual contains workshop materials developed by the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, in conjunction with the Council of State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation Sub-Committee on Deafness. The workshop is designed to enhance career development of deaf individuals and to facilitate access and accommodation of deaf individuals in postsecondary education, by training college staff who work with hearing-impaired students. The workshop's objectives are to provide an understanding of the vocational rehabilitation process and mandates, and to have participants develop an action plan to effect a workable, long-term cooperative effort to maximize services to hearing-impaired students. The manual begins with such pre-workshop materials as correspondence and an agenda. Module A, "Introduction to Vocational Rehabilitation," covers the background, philosophy, eligibility criteria, and goals of vocational rehabilitation. Module B describes the Individualized Written Rehabilitation Plan, covering eligibility for vocational rehabilitation services and potential problem areas. Module C, "Problem Identification and Collaborative Planning," presents a problem-solving model, a collaborative planning form, and a scale for rating participants' commitment to their action plans. An appendix contains a trainer report form, a followup evaluation form, transparency masters, and handout masters. (JDD)
